BNY Mellon wins award for Inclusion in the UK

BNY Mellon wins award for Inclusion in the UK

Congratulations to BNY Mellon’s Manchester office in the UK which won the award for ‘Collaboration of the Year’ in the inaugural Inclusive Networks Awards on November 19, 2015.

The winning project was BNY Mellon’s partnership with local HIV charity George House Trust (GHT)  and involved digitally archiving the UK AIDS quilt. The initiative was recognised for the strength of partnership between business and the community. To learn more about the quilt, please click here.

The unique awards celebrate and reward the work and positive impact of network groups from all diversity strands and from all sectors. More than 450 nominations were received from across the UK.

Nominations for the awards were received by networks, the organisations they represent, other networks they have worked with, charities and community groups they have supported, their members, supporters and more.

The winners were announced at a special reception in Manchester on Thursday evening. BNY Mellon was also shortlisted in the Investor in Networks category.

Malcolm Struthers, who set up and managed the project, said: "This was a great way to celebrate ten years of BNY Mellon in Manchester and George House Trust’s 30 year anniversary.

“We are extremely proud of our community partnerships and commitment to diversity and inclusion. To be recognised in this category at the first ever Inclusive Networks is a great acknowledgement of the hard work of BNY Mellon colleagues in Manchester."
